Charm of Holland - Volendam, Marken, Edam and Windmills: Join this magical full day tour and embark on a journey from Amsterdam to the picturesque countryside of the Netherlands. Sit back and enjoy the ride through the scenic landscape, dotted with windmills, canals and charming little villages.
First stop is Marken, a quaint fishing village where the traditional Dutch way of life can still be seen on the streets.
